Christina Ricci In Jenny Packham – ‘Bel Ami’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

If you heard a loud thud. That was my chin hitting the floor.

I’m at loss for words to describe how devastatingly; drop-dead-gorgeous Christina Ricci looked tonight whilst taking the red carpet for the ‘Bel Ami’ Berlinale Film Festival premiere in Germany this evening.

She wore a Jenny Packham soft blue and nude sequin column gown.

The gown is relatively simple and would make anyone look beautiful, but it’s that extra 100% that Christina always gives on the red carpet to make this look outstanding.

As always, we are not worthy.

Christina wore her hair back in a low bun, carried a gold clutch and wore a Pomellato ‘Tango’ white topaz and brown diamond ring to complete her look.

At the photocall for ‘Ben Ami’ during the Berlinale Film Festival earlier in the day, Christina wore an electric blue Thakoon Fall 2011 dress with a plunging neckline and gathered skirt.

She accessorized with Solange Azagury-Partridge ‘Mishmash’ bangle, a ‘Skeleton’ ring and YSL Tribtoo pumps.

    Saw a photo of Christina Ricci in this amazing blue dress the day after the photo call and was desperate to know what designer it was. Fortunately, can always rely on you to provide this information!

    It’s Bel Ami not Ben Ami. 🙂

    I am obviously in the tiny minority but I’m not really excited about either look. I don’t really like the gown–Jennifer Hudson wore something similar awhile ago and I preferred hers. As for the blue dress, it is too lownecked and the folds look sloppy.

    love this 🙂 love the hair

  5. Alina February 18, 2012 at 08:10 #

    WOW! WOW! WOW!

  6. kiwi February 18, 2012 at 06:36 #

    she looks great in that gown.. but I do prefer the photocall look. Somehow the bangs do not work so well with the gown

    I’ve never been a real fan of Christina, but lately she’s had my chin hitting that floor pretty often. She is just beautiful in both these outfits.

  8. Jess2 February 18, 2012 at 01:54 #

    WOW!! kind of lost for words. This year is the first time I have been introduced to Christina’s style as I am fairly new to the site and seriously this woman is out of this world. All of her looks are unbeleivable and her Jenny Packham look is exquisite and going on my BDOTY list. Her Thakoon look is also amazing!! Love love love her style!! Thanks FC 🙂 x

    You have really made me love her style, FC. 😀

    • Fashion Critic February 18, 2012 at 01:03 #

      She is amazing

  10. Shaina February 17, 2012 at 23:37 #

    She looks spectacular;ar! I am in love with her bangs. She is one of the very few celebrities who can pull of blunt bangs (Jessie J is an exception, of course.)

  11. laura D February 17, 2012 at 23:17 #

    Amazing! Despite being tiny, she manages to look so long and elegant.

  12. CreoleLady February 17, 2012 at 23:13 #


    She’s even got me liking the TribToos she’s wearing with that slammin’ electric blue. TRIBTOOS!

  13. Linda February 17, 2012 at 22:08 #

    Love both looks, but love-love the photocall look even more! She’s on fire lately.

  14. marie February 17, 2012 at 21:59 #

    what i’ve always loved about her is the attitude..with her you don’t realize that she’s tiny, she always looks like a supermodel with her attitude..and that jenny packham gown made me say “wow” out loud!

  15. Mol February 17, 2012 at 21:57 #

    Count me in among those whose chins hit the floor, beyond stunning, all her looks are perfectly fitted, but have to say this is my favorite.

  16. Sinead February 17, 2012 at 21:53 #

    best dressed of the week!!!!!!!!!! I would KILL for her cheekbones

  17. argentina February 17, 2012 at 21:25 #

    I love her style, and she looks great in both looks. I totally agree she looks like Kim Cattrall, that’s maybe beacause all the face jobs she has receibed.

  18. fromchi-town February 17, 2012 at 21:21 #

    She looks outstanding. Definitely a BDOTW nominee

  19. Cecelia February 17, 2012 at 21:20 #

    I think I found my vote for BDOTW. She looks amazing in that beautiful dress. Kudos.

    Also loving the photocall look. Fun, edgy, and event appropriate.

  20. Ahot February 17, 2012 at 21:06 #

    perfection. in a perfect world i am just so tiny, she is my best friend & i get full access with her closet… sigh!

  21. Jones19 February 17, 2012 at 21:04 #

    Wowza gorge!

  22. Rashmi February 17, 2012 at 21:02 #

    Beautiful gown.. but dont like the shoes..tooo heavy!!

  23. Luiza February 17, 2012 at 20:43 #

    the title of the movie is Bel Ami

  24. dee February 17, 2012 at 20:35 #

    I like the gown but I don’t like the photocall look.

  25. Ericka February 17, 2012 at 20:25 #

    Christina is absolutely killing it lately. She looks amazing.

  26. bm February 17, 2012 at 20:23 #

    This is the best of the best from Christina Ricci this week. BDOTW.

  27. mattison February 17, 2012 at 20:18 #

    I’ve always LOVED Christina Ricci, but she’s really been knocking it outta the ballpark lately. If I didn’t know she’s tiny in real life, I’d guess she was 6′ tall on the red carpet. This will definitely be my BDOTW.

  28. Lori February 17, 2012 at 20:15 #

    The Jenny Packham is so gorgeous. Jaw-dropping is right. The Thakook is amazing as well.

  29. susan February 17, 2012 at 20:08 #

    I loved the premiere look until I saw the shoes. Dont like them.

  30. shap_half February 17, 2012 at 20:06 #

    I think all three of her looks should make this week’s BDOTW poll. She gave us three different and amazing looks, each distinctly stylish.

    • Fashion Critic February 17, 2012 at 20:14 #

      If all 3 of her looks and all 3 of Angelina’s look make the list there won’t be much space for everyone else 🙂

  31. GiGi February 17, 2012 at 19:59 #

    Absolutely curvalicious and gorgeous. I do believe she has been working out – with amazing success. She makes AJolie’s looks seem bland and lifeless.

  32. Ritika February 17, 2012 at 19:59 #

    I prefer the Thakoon. I think the hair in that look goes with the dress. Cant say the same about the red carpet look.

  33. Rebecca Z February 17, 2012 at 19:59 #

    tough decisions this week–she looks spectacular.

  34. Zineb February 17, 2012 at 19:58 #

    I know it’s waaaaaaaaaaay too early to say this but I can picture her winning the BDOTY !!! OUTSTANDING !! Just when we thought the week was over, she hits us with THIS !!

    • Amanda February 20, 2012 at 16:38 #

      +1 she looks sensational!

  35. ash February 17, 2012 at 19:55 #

    wow it fits her like a glove and hugs all the right places..and she has an amazing body to top it all…that picture with her looking up at the camera’s is stunnin and so hollywood glam!

  36. rosie February 17, 2012 at 19:52 #

    She looks gorgeous and is totally selling this dress but i really really wish she’d ditch those bangs – I feel like they age her

  37. Anna February 17, 2012 at 19:51 #

    She looks nice, but something’s definitely missing. FC, I don’t mean to be picky, but the movie is actually called ‘Bel Ami’.

  38. Mick February 17, 2012 at 19:50 #

    I think the movie is Bel Ami?
    However, she looks amazing, she’s stunning in the gown and I also love the photocall look. I’ve always had a girl crush on her, but lately she’s been outstanding!

    • Fashion Critic February 17, 2012 at 19:53 #

      yep. thanks

  39. Leska February 17, 2012 at 19:47 #

    The name of the movie is Bel Ami, is a french name. Btw can you please put the pic of Robert Pattinson on the Red carpet, he was amazing, so handsome. Ps: Chritina is totally a BDOTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. molly February 17, 2012 at 19:47 #

    So beautiful, but I really wish that she pulled the bangs back. But thats a small complaint because my chin is also on the floor. For such a tiny lady, she can rock a gown like no other.

  41. ramsay February 17, 2012 at 19:46 #

    I much prefer her in that Thakoon dress – The Jenny Packham is nice but I prefer her two other gowns from this week

  42. Emmeline February 17, 2012 at 19:46 #

    She looks stunning at the premiere, that dress fits her beautifully. And even though I know she’s super petite, you’d never guess form these pictures. She carries herself well.

    But I’m going to be a bit of a weird-o and say that I actually preferred Holliday Grainger’s look at the premiere. She was lovely in blue.

  43. yazz February 17, 2012 at 19:45 #

    the movie is bel ami

  44. Nat39 February 17, 2012 at 19:43 #

    Even though she lacks height to fully sell this gown, she makes up for it with her presence. Looks like we’ve got a BDOTW frontrunner.

  45. bas February 17, 2012 at 19:39 #


  46. Lisa February 17, 2012 at 19:37 #

    Is it me, or does anyone else see a little bit of Kim Cattrall in her? Maybe it’s the bangs. 😀

  47. morgan February 17, 2012 at 19:35 #

    The gown is GORGEOUS! With all the great looks we’ve seen recently from everyone, I thought it was going to be hard this week to pick the best. She just made that VERY easy

  48. Andreea February 17, 2012 at 19:34 #

    She always looks stunning !
